Something magical happens...a miracle...a cure, not in her wildest dreams but only she knows the real answer. A mind is a terrible thing to lose but Lou knows there are far worst things at stake. She must fight for what belongs to her, so begins a war, one without winners...but a battle that must be waged at all consequences.
